it is very tough to get around the city of boston this morning. again, we'll look for coastal flooding to be one more surge of danger here throughout the morning hours because the tide comes up. but after that, the storm pulls away. i'll have much more coming up in your national forecast. for now, let's head back into dan. >> not quite over yet. ginger, great to hear the boston accents in your story. making me homesick. we appreciate it. ginger, much more from you later in the broadcast. here in new york city, where people are normally skeptical about weather warnings, and everything else, after sandy, the defiance is dramatically diminished, which is justified. look at the numbers. more than 600,000 customers in the dark, including 400,000 in massachusetts alone. abc's john schriffen is out on long island in new york, which had massive power problems post-sandy. john, how is it looking right now? >> reporter: dan, right now, we're seeing around 10,000 power outages. that's because this time around, the power company said they were ready for the worst.
